We get it. The colorful bottles, fruity tastes and promises of better athletic performance have lured you into choosing “sports drinks” to quench your golf-course thirst. In the grand scheme of things, you could make a worse beverage choice. Or you could skip drinking fluids altogether, which medical studies have proved will negatively impact how you play—mentally and physically. But we’re still not on board with recommending traditional sports drinks (think beverages ending in “ade”). If you want to properly hydrate your body when you play, nothing beats H20. Sometimes you need a drink of water that includes minerals such as electrolytes, which counter the effects of sweating on a hot day. And sometimes you need water infused with vitamins and antioxidants to supplement your diet. And sometimes you just want something fizzy to quench your thirst. It’s like having a soda or beer without the guilt. Just know there are waters on the market that answer all of those needs. And to suggest something does a better job at keeping your body primed for an athletic activity is laughable. Water is king in beverage land, and these products do the best at getting you off the 18th green in great shape.
